Actually the A350 wings will be assembled at the Broughton Airbus plant near Chester, not Bristol, although some components are made in the vicinity of Bristol. Haven't seen the video yet so sorry if it clarifies this anyway  .

I'm sure there is another thread somewhere discussing A350 production.

Jay.



Why do you drink? Because the finest people that I've ever met have been in pubs.

Was that an Ingresol fiber placement machine? The video wasn't sharp enough for me to read the logo.

If you visit Derby you can see where the engines for the same aircraft are made.

Thanks, it's good to see some high tech leading edge manufacturing going on in the UK, and nice to contrast it with the Brizzle accent 

It seems that production is ramping up smoothly, for at least one bit of the A350...



it's the bus to stansted (now renamed national express a4 to ruin my username)

Definitely. Seeing this sort of production, and especially so close to where I live, is very reassuring.
